Ingredients

    1 1/2 cups yellow split peas, rinsed and sorted
    4 1/2 cups water
    2 cups diced onion
    1/4 cup water
    8 cloves garlic, minced
    2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
    1 tablespoon tomato paste
    2 tablespoons turmeric
    1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
    1/2 tablespoon garam masala
    1/4 teaspoon cayenne powder
    1/4 cup water
    salt and pepper to taste

Directions

Place split peas in a medium pot, and add water.
Bring to a simmer and cook, covered, 30 minutes. There will still be some liquid in the pot.
In another large heavy pot, sweat the onion in about 1/4 cup water until very translucent.
Add garlic, ginger and tomato paste and saute two minutes.
Stir in spices and remaining water and cook 5 minutes longer, stirring.
Add the cooked split peas and enough of the cooking liquid to form a gravy-like sauce.
Cook until everything is well combined and hot.
Serve over brown rice, couscous or with naan, injera or pita, if desired.
